A grieving icon striving for happiness: “Happier than ever”, in English “happier than ever”, is the name of the second album of American star Billie Eilish (19), which was released a few days ago. With her new record, the pop singer broke Apple’s record as the “most added album” in the entertainment giant’s history even before its release. Over 1,028,000 fans wanted to hear Eilish’s new record beforehand. Blick explains the top 10 facts about the exceptional California artist.
Eilish was noticed early on for her singing talent. At eight, she joined the local church choir, and at eleven she began writing her own songs.
In the fall of 2015, Eilish released her debut single “Ocean Eyes” on Soundcloud. The track turned out to be a surprising hit, clicked countless times and made Eilish an overnight star.
the middle name
The “Bad Boy” singer’s real name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell. Which indicates her parents’ preference for special middle names.
Eilish’s brother Phineas O’Connell (24 years old) is a successful music producer like FINNEAS who has so far produced all of his sister’s songs. The two recorded Eilish’s debut album at their parents’ home in Los Angeles.
The recipe for the success of the young American, who says she does not like to laugh, also includes her unmistakable style: she loves to appear dressed in XL so that it does not recede into her body.
Breaking the taboo
Eilish sings about Tourette’s disease, depression, and suicidal thoughts on the nerves of her generation. Her music videos are often dark and intimidating. Eilish: “I always do what scares me.”
In her song “NDA,” Eilish sings about letting the men she’s dating sign a “nondisclosure agreement.”
In April 2020, Eilish contributed the song to the 007 movie “No Time to Die” and became the youngest musician to translate a James Bond song.
In June, dressed in sexy lingerie, the singer graced the cover of British Vogue, breaking her record on Instagram – the photo received more than ten million likes in just six minutes.
Billie Eilish’s announced 2022 world tour, which will also stop at Hallenstadion Zurich in June, has already been sold out.
